"Early comprehension is difficult to measure in prereaders. The topic is therefore often overlooked in research, tools, and interventions. This title serves as a remedy by presenting theoretical models of prereader comprehension as well as skill-boosting approaches to building strong foundations for future reading comprehension. Various methods include using play, academic talk, digital texts, and informational texts to promote emergent language comprehension and using vocabulary intervention to build listening comprehension. Contributors address special subpopulations and offer guidance on working with included and multilingual children. The text also addresses the role of parents, teachers, and executive functioning in prereader comprehension as well as assessment methods (existing and desired), challenges, and opportunities. Some chapters translate knowledge for the benefit of parents and practitioners. Others aim to fill gaps in current thinking, practices, and research"--

Handbook of Individual Differences in Reading

Handbook of Individual Differences in Reading Author Peter Afflerbach

The central unifying theme of this state-of-the-art contribution to research on literacy is its rethinking and reconceptualization of individual differences in reading. Previous research, focused on cognitive components of reading, signaled the need for ongoing work to identify relevant individual differences in reading, to determine the relationship(s) of individual differences to reading development, and to account for interactions among individual differences. Addressing developments in each of these areas, this volume also describes affective individual differences, and the environments in which individual differences in reading may emerge, operate, interact, and change. The scant comprehensive accounting of individual differences in reading is reflected in the nature of reading instruction programs today, the outcomes that are expected from successful teaching and learning, and the manner in which reading development is assessed. An important contribution of this volume is to provide prima facie evidence of the benefits of broad conceptualization of the ways in which readers differ. The Handbook of Individual Differences in Reading moves the field forward by encompassing cognitive, non-cognitive, contextual, and methodological concerns. Its breadth of coverage serves as both a useful summary of the current state of knowledge and a guide for future work in this area.

The Reading House is a collection of fun learning experiences, routines, and games that nurture literacy development in children from birth through the elementary school years. It was written for parents who want to be involved in, and positively contribute to, their child’s academic development. The Reading House describes nine skill sets that must work together for children to become strong, independent readers. Parents of babies and toddlers can use the foundational activities with their children to set the stage for future language development. Parents of preschoolers and kindergarten students can have fun loving literature and playing the alphabet games together. Elementary-aged children can participate in routines and experiences with their parents as they learn reading strategies, vocabulary, and language arts lessons. Lastly, parents of children who thirst for additional challenges can sink their teeth into the open-ended comprehension and story extension activities. The foundational, unique premise of The Reading House is the use of the literary experience. Literary experiences are instructional reading moments, games, or routines that can occur within the context of everyday life. Sometimes these events are planned and sometimes they aren’t. The defining aspect of literary experiences, though, is that they happen naturally throughout the course of a child’s day. It doesn’t make sense to isolate language learning as a once-a-day activity. Listening and communicating with others; taking meaning from text and forming new ideas; writing about unique ideas in a clear, concise manner are all methods for children to grow into progressive thinkers. The most natural way to effectively teach these skills is to introduce them within a child’s home and school environment as life is happening. The Reading House is different from other “how to teach reading” books in that it provides strategies to help beginning, challenged, uninspired, and advanced readers. Central to all of these activities is the importance of loving literature to make reading a fun, eagerly anticipated habit. Parents have said that they love The Reading House activities because they are easily assimilated into their daily habits, the kids have fun doing them, and because they are based upon tried-and-true educational premises, such as: • Patterning the Classic Reader – emulating the reading behaviors of independent readers through games, routines, and strategies • Loving Books – devoting significant attention to drumming up excitement and enthusiasm about reading quality children’s literature • Starting Early - engaging infants, babies and toddlers in songs and conversations, mimicking their utterances, and providing sensory experiences to lay the foundation for language development • Involving the Learner – providing cooperative activities, movement, and interaction while reading • Balancing Traditional and Progressive Methods – pairing traditional teaching methods with more progressive approaches for a balanced learning program • Adapting to Different Learning Styles – varying teaching methods so that our kinesthetic, visual, aural, and tactile learners all have an equal chance of success Arming parents with this educational know-how gives them more traction to truly make a difference in their child’s reading success.

A devastatingly large number of people in America cannot read as well as they need for success in life. With literacy problems plaguing as many as four in ten children in America, this book discusses how best to help children succeed in reading. This book identifies the most important questions and explores the authoritative answers on the topic of how children can grow into readers, including: What are the key elements all children need in order to become good readers? What can parents and caregivers provide all children so that they are prepared for reading instruction by the time that they get to school? What concepts about language and literacy should be included in beginning reading instruction? How can we prevent reading difficulties starting with infants and into the early grades? What to ask school boards, principals, elected officials, and other policy makers who make decisions regarding early reading instruction. You'll find out how to help youngsters build word recognition, avoid comprehension problems, and more--with checklists of specific accomplishments to be expected at different ages: for very young children, for kindergarten students, and for first, second, and third grade students. Included are 55 activities to do with children to help them become successful readers, a list of recommended children's books, and a guide to CD-ROMs and websites. Great strides have been made recently toward identifying the best ways to teach children to read. Starting Out Right provides a wealth of knowledge based on a summary of extensive research. It is a "must read" for specialists in primary education as well as parents, pediatricians, child care providers, tutors, literacy advocates, policy makers, and teachers.

While most children learn to read fairly well, there remain many young Americans whose futures are imperiled because they do not read well enough to meet the demands of our competitive, technology-driven society. This book explores the problem within the context of social, historical, cultural, and biological factors. Recommendations address the identification of groups of children at risk, effective instruction for the preschool and early grades, effective approaches to dialects and bilingualism, the importance of these findings for the professional development of teachers, and gaps that remain in our understanding of how children learn to read. Implications for parents, teachers, schools, communities, the media, and government at all levels are discussed. The book examines the epidemiology of reading problems and introduces the concepts used by experts in the field. In a clear and readable narrative, word identification, comprehension, and other processes in normal reading development are discussed. Against the background of normal progress, Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children examines factors that put children at risk of poor reading. It explores in detail how literacy can be fostered from birth through kindergarten and the primary grades, including evaluation of philosophies, systems, and materials commonly used to teach reading.
